In grade 5/6 c we are doing a mini project on a forensic scientist and this is some information on Wilton Krogman that I collected…

I will be telling you about Wilton Krogman. He was born in June on the 28th in 1903. Wilton was a forensic anthropologist. For those of you that don’t know what a forensic anthropologist is then think of the TV show CSI other-wise known as crime scene investigations. What he did was use science to analyse bones to see who the bones belong too. He worked solving major crimes in the USA and set the standards for all the forensic investigators who follow in his footsteps. Not only did he work on modern crimes he was also involved in establishing and identifying ancient bones. He actually identified bones belonging to Egyptian pharaohs. For those of you that don’t know a pharaoh is a ruler of ancient Egypt. Wilton’s interest in forensic anthropology began when he was a child when he and his brother found the skeleton of a horse. As his interest grew he studied at the university of Chicago. After graduating he worked as a lab technician for Eliot Pess and was involved in the arrest of Al Capone, The world’s most famous gangster. He also thought at 2 different university’s and his findings are still used by forensic investigators throughout the world today. He died on the 4th of November 1987 as a 84 year old man.
